In The Jailhouse Now

Guy Clark

 C
I had a friend named Bill Campbell
 C
He used to rob, steal, and gamble
 CG
And on the side he begged so he mopped up
 G
Well, I told ol' Bill he shouldn't do it
 G
And ol' Bill said that he knew it
 DG
So he started begging with a bucket instead of a cup

Chorus 1:
 C
He's in the jailhouse now
 F
He's in the jailhouse now
 G
Lord, ol' Bill flubbed his dub
 G
When he wore a tuxedo to the country club
 C
He's in the jailhouse now

Yodel chords:

Ol' Bill had a gal named Sadie
And she said "Have you seen Bill lately?"
Naw, I don't believe that he's about
Well, ol' Sadie went down to the jail
It was just to pay his bail
And she whispered "Sheriff, please don't let him out!"

Chorus 2:
He's in the jailhouse now
He's in the jailhouse now
Lord, while ol' Bill's away
Sadie's with the sheriff every day
He's in the jailhouse now

You remember the last election
The prohibitionist was in action
Tryin' to elect themselves a president
And Bill Campbell and John Austin
They rode from New Orleans to Boston
And they bought them a bottle in every settlement

Chorus 3:
In the jailhouse now
In the jailhouse now
Lord, they caught 'em down by the railroad track
Stealin' the train just to haul it back
They're in the jailhouse now

Yodel
